The Bangkok night market is open in Mandalay’s Manaw Yaman grounds from 21 to 24 March. People can visit the market and sample zesty Thai food, such as sweet and sour prawn soup or Pad Thai and trendy Thai fashions, said Ma Nan Aye Myat Mon, an organizer of the night market.
This is the third time the night market took place in Mandalay. The Thai style night market is comprised of more than 60 stalls, and about five shops are directly from Thailand where Thai accessories, clothes and food are sold.
The previous events were in November and December last year.
“In Mandalay, we do not have many social meeting places where we can walk around with friends or family and see and do different things at night. And I’d like to have a place like the night markets in Bangkok. That’s why we organized the opening of the night market here,” Ma Nan Aye Myat Mon said.
Organizers intend to open BKK night markets in Monywa, Magway, Taunggyi, Sagaing, Magway Regions and Shan State.
The night market will open from 4 p.m to 10 p.m.
